"Besides using inedible fats for ammunition," Miss Marker states, they are used by manufacturers "they are used my manufacturers de-icing fluids for the wings of airplanes, ' In vitamin tablets which prevent scurvy, in hydraulic fluids for the landing gears of airplanes, for dyes for wool fabrics, for treating all leather goods used in the services, to make plastic materials and special lubricating oils and for making synthetic rubber, protective coatings, vaccines, insecticides and sulfa drug ointments. Since the fats are necessary to so many industries, saving of waste fats is a wartime duty." Another salvage "must," Miss Barker states, is that of tin cans since tin is much needed in the making of syrettcs, tiny morphine hypodermic syringes which may be used by wounded soldiers to deaden pain until help arrives. Millions of the syrettes are needed and the tin reclaimed from 2 ordinary used food cans is sufficient to make one syrctte. Mrs H. J. Steinberg, Mason City, is to review "Men in Motion" by Henry J.
